NEXT TURN: WEDNESDAY
-Colonial governors of New Navarra, Javertus, and Pretoria gather to formally divide the great desert between their states. The region is definitely not settled, and likely never will be, but the land is now claimed and governed as seen on the map.
-I have decided that, ultimately, units on the map are too much of a hassle to manage, and so few people reacted to it that it wasn’t worth the extra work.

-Farms in the Central Black Earth Region are arranged so that varying crop types create a text visible from space reading ‘BSOD IS THE BEST.’ If there were people in space, they might notice. But there aren’t, so they don’t.
-Uranium mining and refining begins in Ukraine.
-Experiments with fissile elements leads to the discovery of the atomic model, and the creation of a nuclear reactor.
-To make up for the loss of the oil market, steel production is subsidized. Unemployment rates drop.
-Agricultural reforms are also made, and the USSR quickly becomes the leading food exporter.
-Military supplies are sent to the PRC. The Kuomintang is infuriated, and has done all they can to put a stop to it, including sinking several shipping freighters traveling through the East China Sea.
-Diplomatic gestures are made to repair relations with Persia, but they mostly fall flat.
